It is a great product. It works fine, so we recommend it. We are continuing to use and expand it. Right now, MongoDB is deployed for a very specific use case. However, it is something that we always consider when we are looking to migrate away from traditional RDBMS, like Oracle and SQL Server, then MongoDB is on the top of that list. We see if it is capable of supporting the app as written. I was not involved in the implementation or configuration. The product is hosted on AWS.

I would recommend the product. I have only used the AWS version.

Look at what MongoDB can do for you in terms of database back-end persistence. I would recommend to look at this first before you start looking at other solutions. My company is interested in putting out products that are reliable for our customers, which we can monitor easily. We also want them to be easy to install and deploy, which is why I am happy with this one. We are running this on an AWS instance. We use RADIUS, but I don't know if it is integrated with this product. We also use Python on the back-end, which is integrated with MongoDB.

I have been happy with the service. Everything is good. Though, nothing stands out to me as exceptional. I would encourage someone to look at DynamoDB, even though I am fine with MongoDB. If you are in a fully integrated into the AWS environment, you might want to stick with Amazon Web Services rather than a third-party. We use it as a service, so we don't configure anything.

I would recommend it. It is better than the legacy databases, and it is very good with the cloud. We integrated it with TestRail and JIRA. Everything is on cloud. It integrates well, and we are happy with it.

We are always integrating this product with our business applications because it is a database. Without our applications, the product doesn't make sense. The integration is quite straightforward, because of the consistences within MongoDB, you can find where to connect it. I have used both the AWS and the on-premise versions. The AWS integration allows you to go faster in terms of deployment and the tooling in the cloud also allows you to go faster.

I would recommend MongoDB. I would like to bring in MongoDB at my new company, though I doubt it will happen.

I would recommend MongoDB. The integration and configuration of the product on the AWS environment is fine. We use the AWS version of this product. We also use WebEx, and it works well.
